The popular Fyr Bal returns Saturday in Ephraim

The village of Ephraim will be celebrating its Scandinavian heritage this weekend as the 56th annual Fyr Bal returns.  The events include a Fur Bal pet parade starting at 9 am Saturday along with the Artisan and Food Vendor Market at 10 am. 

 

The festival concludes with fireworks and the 56th Chieftain ceremony, where one of the Ephraim residents or business owners gets the honor of lighting the bonfire on the beach to signify the “burning of the winter witch” on the shoreline of Eagle Harbor.  You can find more details on the Fyr Bal festival here.
